day of paint (strikingly similar to day of pain)

June 2, 2006

Actually it really wasn’t that bad, but lets just say I may have stumbled upon another career that isn’t for me. Today was my first day at SW and I put in 5.75 hours, so it looks like I may have just earned 40ish dollars, woot for $8/hour. In order to give you all a description of what I do I will give a short compare and contrast to GG.

At GG we have a blender that we press a button on and then wait for.
At SW we have a mixer that we press a button on and then wait for(ever).

At GG I work with 4 great girls and my manager is a woman.
At SW I work with 3 great guys and my manager is a man.

At GG we clean the bathroom once a day.
At SW we clean the bathroom when they get a new employee (ie. guess what I did this afternoon!)

At GG we have a bell to let us know that a customer has arrived.
At SW we have a buzzer to let us know that a customer has arrived.

Sometimes at GG we have 10 customers at once and sometimes we have 2 hours with no one.
Sometimes at SW we have 5 customers at once and sometimes we have 2 hours with no one.

But the biggest difference is that at GG I pretty much know exactly how to help everyone who comes in the door. Name a drink, I can make it, ask a question about our biscotti or our smoothie mix and I can probably find it out for you. But at SW, I don’t know anything. But I did learn that a semi-gloss means that you can see the shine when you look at the wall from a angle.

  1. i’m responding to your “stalking”, which wasn’t stalking at all. This is crazy! Do you know Doug Stuckey? We went to Church together since we were little kids, and i know he’s moving to chicago to humboldt park blvd. This will be crazy! I can’t wait to meet you and have some sort of connection out there in Chicago. I also have lots of friends doing theater there who are alumni of the college I went to, so I won’t be too lonely, but it will still be nice to meet new folks while living in a strange place. Write me anytime! –Amanda Nelson–
